We went here as a post-Valentine's celebration and both of us thought the food was very well prepared. Prices for the entrées and wines were very reasonable and portions were good. This is a small locale which I had driven by many times without realizing...More

Pastabilities was a real find. The food is excellent and is hand made by Luigi Vitrone, the owner and chef. He has captured the spirit of an Italian trattoria, with very reasonable prices and the feel of being a guest at a friend’s home. Fortunately...More

Everything from scratch, everything fresh. The best bang for your buck in the Delaware Valley. Forget the homemade desserts.

I have driven by Pastabilities numerous times, and often missed it because it is small and tucked in with a number of row homes. However, a friend advised me that I should make a point of dining here if I am in the area. Great...More

My husband and I ate here for the first time this evening. Upon entering the eatery I was confident that I would enjoy my meal because it smelled so delicious inside. The atmosphere is quirky, the tables and space are small, but those are the...More
